About the Event

Built in 1985, the Powell Observatory is located about 25 miles South of Kansas City in Lewis-Young Park, just North of Louisburg, KS.  At this location, skies are much darker than in the city.  The observatory has one of the largest telescopes open to the public in a five-state area - the Ruisinger Telescope, a Newtonian reflector with a 30" diameter mirror. The telescope is installed in a 20 foot dome, with an equatorial fork mount and computerized control systems.

This will be an evening of fun and learning as we use their telescopes to look into the sky! 

COST: $15 per person. 

This event is open to those who have joined The Hive. 

Ticket fees are nonrefundable.
